These are the speeches for Rabbi Zvi Block's annual Israel Melava Malka which he hosts yearly for his students in Israel. In 2011, the event was hosted by Yeshivat Dvar Yerushalayim in Har Nof. The two featured speakers were Rabbi B. Horowitz, Rosh Yeshiva of Dvar Yerushalayiim and Rabbi Zvi Block, spiritual leader of Beis Midrash Toras HaShem/Young Israel of Valley Village.
In explaining the four goals of Kiruv (as set forth by Rabbi Noach Weinberg of Aish HaTorah), Rabbi Zvi Block tells over his early experiences as rabbinical student in Israel. He elaborates on his trials and tribulations as an early student of Rabbi Noach Weinberg and of his life in Yeshivas Mir.
